There is no doubt that New World is a very complicated game. And the biggest issue isn’t that the overall nature of the game is complicated, but how it is made. Certain major and minor aspects and mechanics of the game, although they exist, they cannot be found anywhere in the menus. Today’s topic is how to track resources in New World.
New World – How To Track Resources
As you might know, New World is highly dependant on resource gathering. It is at the core of the game, and there are progression curves for such mechanics, which can be leveled up quite easily.
That goes for tracking, skinning, logging, mining, fishing, and harvesting. Each of the before-mentioned aspects and resources can be tracked, but only if you have the appropriate level required to track a particular item.
To get an understanding of how all this works, open up your menu and go to the Character tab. From there, you will need to navigate to your ‘Trade Skills’ which are all of those mechanics we mentioned earlier, with a few more.
When you’re there, you’ll see that in the gathering section of the menu, there are a couple of things which can be trackable. Ores, animals, fish, plants, and more. These all can be tracked, but only at a certain level.
Open one of those gathering trade skills, and it will give you a list of the available items. Underneath each item/subject is a number. There might be two numbers, one for ‘Gatherable at’ and one ‘Tracked at’ depending on the item in question.
You’ll need to look at the ‘Tracked at’ number, which is actually the level which is required to start tracking that particular thing.
So, the whole point is, you’ll need to level up a particular trade skill, in order to start tracking some item that you need. Leveling up those trade skills is straightforward.
What do you need to do? Just do the thing. In other words, if you’re looking to increase your Mining level, simply go around and mine different ores. This will give you Mining experience.
